Chilly Weather Did Not Affect Peter Anderson Fest
Festival organizers announced turnout for this weekend’s event had one of the highest ever, with more than 150,000 people. The two day event had over 400 artist booths and two stages with live music. The Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce estimates the economic impact of the event was more than $23 million for the city and Jackson County.
Cynthia Dobbs Sutton, Event Coordinator and Public Relations for the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce, says, “Fall season is one of our busiest times of the year, with our local businesses and shop and restaurants that surround the festival. It’s just a very successful event and it’s been a very successful season.”
Event organizers say they are already planning for next year’s festival.
